. there are many, many unanswered questions tonight, including unconfirmed reports on devices found. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unsploided bombs. the official confirmation is that there were two devices. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages and done away with by law enforce. . no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in a young man who is an eyewitness. he was eating with co-workers when he heard the first explosion. so you're about 100 yards away. what did you hear? >> bewere inside the restaurant. heard the first explosion. kind of shook the building a little bit. we kind of wondered what it was. looked outside and saw some smoke. actually ran outside. then the second one blew up about 100 yards from us. >> did they sound like they were about the same size? >> the first one sounded small, because i
is following up on several leads and it is in the boston suburb of revere and it shows law enforcement searching an apartment house in that city. they were seen pulling a number of trash bags and a duffle bag in that house and it was prompted by a traffic stop which was prompted by a suspicious driver and they are looking to find who is responsible for yesterday's frightening scene at the boston marathon. this is video from a camera that was being worn by a runner and it capture is the blasts which went off yesterday afternoon. the latest numbers we have this morning are three people dead and at least 140 injured and one of those killed was an eight-year-old boy. at least a dozen people are in area hospitals in critical condition and their injuries include broken bones, severed limbs and broken eardrums. so farther speculating on a possible motive and president barack obama is urging people to wait for all of the facts. >> we still do not know who did this or why and people should not jump to conclusions before we have all the facts but make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of thi
," we'll hear the latest from law enforcement officials in boston about the ongoing investigation into monday's bombing. we'll also talk to former senator joe lieberman about how security has changed in this country since 9/11. and former top advisor to president obama, david axelrod, about how the white house is handling this situation. >>> but we begin in boston where the back bay has been transformed into a crime scene sealed off for blocks and law enforcement try to determine who was behind monday's deadly attack at the boston marathon. of course this all began at about ten minutes to 3:00 on monday. about four hours into the race when an explosion went off just yards from the finish line. then about 15 seconds later a second explosion about 500 feet down the road. at least three people were killed in the blasts, one of them was 8-year-old martin richard whose father was in the race. his mother and sister suffered serious injuries. at least 126 people are still hospitalized. ten of them possibly as many as 17 in critical condition following the attack. >> there was cloud every

saw, david, that law enforcement is asking the public for help in the form of videos, photos, anything. do you have any sense of what kind of response they're getting? >> they're getting a great response. there are hundreds and thousands of pictures and videos that were taken. you know, the social media since 9/11 has expanded. everybody has phones and cameras now and so this is going to taken a enormous amount of work if they're trying to go through these. this could be very complicated. some people suggest it indicates that they don't have a lot of leads otherwise. but certainly that's one thing that they're looking for. >> brown: speaking of 9/11, i wonder just tell -- give us a sense of the mood there today and maybe you can compare it to what happened after 9/11. >> absolutely. i remember 9/12 and 9/12 was a day much like today: brilliant sky, warm. in 2001 on 9/11 boston was a crime scene that had no evidence, there were no victims here and so it had been robbed in that sense. today just the opposite. a terrible number of victims and a lot of devastation at that scene. >> brown:

and otherwise. as you know, law enforcement sources suggested at least two unexploded devices have been found. that's magic for investigators right now. notwithstanding forensic evidence, fingerprints, dna, hairs, fibers. they'll also see how the device was built. they'll be able to see what the components are. they'll be able to trace those components back. we're told that these are relatively unsophisticated low-order explosive devices. richard, that's something like if we think back to the olympic park bombing in 1996. >> right. >> those pipe bombs filled with black powder with shrapnel in or packed around them. that's the type of device. and realize in this case, where a bullet, let's say, for example, moves at about 1,000 feet a second. that low-order explosive, when it went off, it would still be pushing those bbs and ball bearings and other shrapnel at about. 000 foot a square second. so investigators are trying to gather all of that information up as well as looking at photographs, do interviews, surveillance cameras. they have a lot to do. but they have a lot to work with. >> so thos
two bombs were detonated. >> reporter: a law enforcement official tells cbs news, the bombs that exploded near the finish line of the boston marathon, were built and put in place to look like pieces of trash. [ explosion ] >> the devices were put inside pressure cookers and placed inside bags. the pots were packed with nails and small metal pellets. >> we were maybe 10 feet away from the explosion. >> reporter: nicholas yanni and his wife are among the survivors being treated for shrapnel injuries and pierced ear drums. >> i couldn't hear too much. it was just a lot of must haved, ringing sounds. >> reporter: more than 170 people were hurt. several lost limbs. three people were killed, include 8-year-old martin richards. brahm called the bombings a cowardly act of terrorism. >> if you want to know who i -- who we are, what america is, how we respond to evil, that's it. selflessly, compassionately, unafraid. >> reporter: surveillance cameras like this one nearby the crime scene are proving crucial to investigators. they are using them, combined with cell phone footage and any
more questions than answers ton. joining me now to explain what is next for law enforcement officials, former l.a. pd detective mark furman is with us. mark, we don't know who or why, but when i heard there were two debt nations after we had the one, and one and then another one 14 seconds later, then the police found two other explosive devices and maybe as many as five others, as the wall street journal says. we haven't confirmed that yet. this seems to fit a pattern of a group. where does your mind go as a detective? >> first, it's terrorism regardless if it's domestic terrorism with a middle east ideology or connection even in spirit and not physically. you know, you look at in, sean, luckily we have electronic surveillance. >> visual equipment almost this everybody's hand. that will be a huge tool in this investigation. the bombs are going to be a huge tool. but they make bombs a certain way in the middle east and they teach their bomb makers to make them in a certain way and these are certainly anti-personnel bombs. they are not intended for vehicles or buildings. these are anti
explosive devices. found on or near the scene of the bombings today. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unexploded bombs for lack of a less specific but more politic term. as of tonight the official confirmation is that there were two devices. only two. those were the two that caused the massive explosions. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages, as potential bombs and done away with by law enforcement in the sometimes explosive way they do that. there are no suspects as of this evening. no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in now a young man today who is an eyewitness to what happened today. jared walker. he was eating with co-workers from ibm at a restaurant a football field's length of way when he heard the first explosion. thanks for being here. you're 100 yards away. what was it like watching? >>

. they now expect more than 40 percent of the claims to be back law during either of these two years. so in revising these projections what matters did you look at and what did they -- what additional you? >> i looked at the actual submissions of receipts of claims that we have received from our veterans of the last five months. each month they have been lowered and are expected volume. >> the math works out to where you would have only a 40% backlog situation. >> no, it doesn't. i don't think that you all would throw me out of here if i said that that would happen. is now where we are. we are at about 69 percent of our plans right now that our older than 125 days, working every single day to drive that never south. we're doing it to focus on how people process technology solutions. as far as we can pushing a productivity by folks from i can tell you today that 70 percent more effective and higher productivity than they were prior to us moving into this transformation plan. >> last year he testified that during 2013 the backlog would be reduced from 60% to 40%, and that would -- and ' --

are you learning? >> wolf, a law enforcement official told me today that authorities are preparing for a long and slow investigation here and it starts with pieces of the explosive devices scattered along an enormous crime scene. even before the dust started to settle, authorities were asking what kind of explosive device created this. the picture of the bombs now starting to emerge is that they were deadly but crude. a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the boston bomb investigation tells cnn the bombs were hidden in bags inside a metal pressure cooker. a law enforcement source also told cnn that it's likely but not certain that a timing device was used to detonate the bomb. emergency room doctors said they believed the bombs contained bbs and nails intended by the bomber to kill or maim as many people as possible. >> there were a variety of sharp objects that we found in their bodies, probably this bomb had multiple metallic fragments in them and we removed them. >> mike bouchard is a former top official with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. >> it cou
it was so hard to talk about. i've talked to doctors and law enforcement officials who have seen a lot of bad things in their day and they have a hard time talking about the carnage they saw yesterday. pamela, thank you very much. >> reporter: we're just getting word into cnn that president obama will make a statement 11:30 a.m. eastern time from the white house briefing room. not sure if it's an update on the investigation, if he has new news. but, again, that statement coming at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. we will of course bring it to you the second it happens. what happened in boston was terrifying for hundreds who were there at the scene when the bombs went off. it's terrifying to look at the video. cassidy brettler witnessed the terror firsthand. this is what she told cnn. >> i don't know. i mean, honestly, i got home last night about 11:00 and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day. i had been trying to remain composed. on social media and video just portray what was going on and tell my story. but by the time i was trying to fall asleep, it was hitting me,
have. the mayor is here. the members of our congressional delegations, all of the law enforcement leadership, several people who want to present to you this morning and take your questions. couple points i want to mention at the outset. i told you yesterday that the fbi has taken charge of the investigation, special agent in charge rick deloriere will speak. it is important to clarify two and only two explosive devices were found yesterday. other parcels, all other parcels in the area of the blast have been examined but they are, there were unexploded bombs or devices found. over 150 people were injured yesterday in the blasts, some gravely. our thoughts go out to all of those injured and killed and to their families and friends. i personally want to thank the extraordinary first responders for their, just extraordinary work yesterday. every single one of them, those who were on site and those who got to the site promptly thereafter performed beautifully as have the area hospitals. i've been calling around to the heads of the hospitals personally to thank them as well. it's our ho
that law enforcement are focused on, areas where large crowds are expected to gather, not just sporting events, but shopping malls and transit hubs. we're seeing the same thing in airports, like los angeles international airport. travelers can expect do see bomb-sniffing dogs, increased police, extra security going through the airport, not just at lax, but airports all around the region. police are also reaching out on social media, twitter and facebook, asking the public this evening to be especially vigilant. again, we want to emphasize there has been no incredible threat in southern california, but the message from law enforcement all around california tonight, to the public, is to watch out, to be alert, and to report anything that seemed out of the ordinary. >> all right, see something, say something, taking on a whole new heightened meaning. thanks so much. >>> now we want to go to our abc producer kendall heap, because she was there, near the finish line in boston at the moment the bombs went off. kendall, i want to bring you in once again, describe to us once more exactly what y
are rampant at all of this times. i actually always find it best to just let the law enforcement officials do their job first. they did not need have rumors or innuendoes thrown around by public officials like me. that does not help the situation. host: what are you doing today? what will guest: your agenda my dad will be tried to stay on top of this as best as possible so they can pass information to others. today's the second most important day for those law enforcement people to do their investigation. they have to get this done as quickly as possible as evidence is available. god forbid if anyone is responsible and thinking about doing this again, before they strike again. host: is that a possibility? guest: you never know. those of the kind of things i like to stay away from. something you can do something like this is certainly an evil and crazy person. you never know what is on the mind of people. they almost always turn out to be, by any normal in definition of the term, insane. you cannot understand what would drive someone to kill innocent people. violence is a part of life, people
of boston and law enforcement trying to piece together who is responsible for the attack. a pair of explosions at the finish line of the boston marathon, the bloody scene shocked many here in boston and around the world. >> you hear about things in other countries and other places, and i guess in the united states we have to be aware that perhaps more of that will be coming our way. >> reporter: the investigation started almost immediately. officials cordenned off several blocks around the bomb site to allow bomb squad detectives to sweep the area for explosive devices. we learned federal and local authorities are searching an apartment of someone they're calling a person of interest in a boston suburb of brassiere. >> this is a fluid and active and fluent ongoing investigation. >> reporter: police searched surveillance cameras in the area, and cbs news confirmed at least one piece of video showing a man carrying two pack backs in the area before the blast. >> they're trying to sweep the other cameras in the area. they want to see who the person is from the front and if he might

me give you. mike brooks is our law enforcement analyst, he is being told that senator wicker now has protective detail, meaning he has security around him, because of the fact that he received this letter which was tested positive for the poison ricin. let me just go back and tell you what we learned, and that is that what happened was this envelope came addressed to senator wicker, it tested once positive for riciricin, they te it two more times, so three times positive for ricin, so as we speak, this envelope has been sent to a facility in suburban washington, in maryland to get yet another test on ricin. this is something that we learned very quickly, actually as and even before most u.s. senators learned, they were briefed not too long ago earlier this evening from the senator sergeant at arms and they were told that this certainly is essentially very harmful, but they were also calmed a bit by reminding them that this is the reason why they have a facility that's offsite where they sort your mail, it doesn't come directly to their offices. >> it's offsite because of the anthrax
brother-in-law is being treated for various cuts and bruises. our team coverage continues. the o. s are starting a lengthy home stand. i'm sure security is going to be affected just as many fans at the ballpark. >> the orioles are working with police, the maryland state authority as well as the major league to boost security. not only here, in surrounding areas like the parking lot and light rail. orioles will be hosting a series with rays that starts tonight. rays were at boston yesterday playing the red sox, hours before the explosion at the marathon. the game here at camden yards starts at 7:05, we have advice on what to do if something were to happen. be prepared. before a large event, coordinate with family and friends. also scout out a place to find cover. follow directions. go with a crowd and not against it. stay aware and create a habit of creating a habit forage emergency exit. here, you can expect to see the beefed up security throughout the city. bat will be staging officers at critical areas where there are crowds incrudessing here at the ballpark. 6th anniversary of th

there will be quite a bit of evidence coming across to law enforcement and into intelligence. >> john: law enforcement is not convince that there is any link with the fire at the jfk library, and in a day full with speculation, much of it biased i applaud your caution on this. could this device point to one type of suspect over another? >> i don't think it can point to one. what we have here is is there is a tendency as individual details come across to say all right what does this detail imply about the suspect or potential bomber. so let's look at what we got here. we've got a situation in which the bomb did not take place at the time of finish. it took out two hours afterwards where the people have left the grandstand, the international racers have already finished and were away. did that raise questions about competence or on purpose? we have multiple explosions. the question is going to be is there more than one person involved? is it a group? is it a lone person? then the quality of the explosive. that would point to someone who is less sophisticated rather than more sophisticated. then you want
